I am a 74 year old gal. Have had an aortic valve replacement 4 years ago. Feel fine, I thought. No apparent symptoms but blood level of 6.3 prior to taking Kalexate for three days. Did not hear from cardiologist so maybe my blood level is back within normal range. How do I keep it there? Seeing this Dr this week.

Hyperkalemia is higher-than-normal levels of potassium in the blood. Hyperkalemia often has no symptoms. Limiting the amount of potassium in the diet and reducing or avoiding potassium supplements will also help. Sometimes diuretics are prescribed if necessary.
Here are a few links including foods high in potassium.
